Welcome to our school website. We are a large and friendly Church of England school in the heart of Bedale with the motto "Learning and Caring Together." All our staff are committed to our pupils receiving the highest quality teaching and the best care, guidance and support so that they may reach their full potential. We are also passionate about sport, entering our teams into local competitions. Our pupils also have access to a range of after-school clubs aimed at broadening their experiences. At Bedale we love music and drama, producing high-quality shows, concerts and productions throughout the year. Our standards are set high and our school was judged by Ofsted in September 2012 to be "good".
We welcome interest from prospective parents and are happy for you to visit the school at any time.
Headteacher: Mrs E R Turnbull
Our school was recently inspected by Ofsted (Tuesday 16th January 2018). The findings from this will be published by Ofsted during the coming weeks. In the meantime, here are some quotes from our 2012 Ofsted report: A sense of caring and togetherness permeates every aspect of school life.; Pupils feel safe, behave well and enjoy coming to school; Pupils use and apply their reading, writing and mathematical skills across the curriculum; ...teachers ensure pace and rigour and pupils display high levels of independence because of clear, high expectations and well established routines.
